.m. or future days. the romney campaign is watching closely florida, virginia and ohio. there are very few victory strategies contemplated by boston, the romney campaign, that don't include the buckeye state and they're concerned about signs of high turn-out in the northern part of ohio where the detroit auto bail-out was a big mallet which the president pounded mr. romney. on the southern border of ohio along kentucky, particularly along cincinnati, hamilton county, big optimism and turn-out for the republican campaign. virginia, florida, ohio romney believes so go though so goes the country. romney has only written one speech, a victory speech. >> carl cameron. let's get straight to the president's camp in chicago and ed henry. >> shep, the president has been getting very wistful. it started in iowa what started the obama movement. he said today he was crying partly because it was cold out and thinking back four years ago and thinking about everyone turning out for him last night. he is hoping for big turn-outs in big battlegrounds. i got off the phone with one of the president's senior
of time here in new hampshire. >> the great state of ohio, thank you so much. >> florida, we know what changes. >> your help, pennsylvania -- >> i need you, ohio. >> virginia is the best. >> turn out for me, colorado. we will win this state. >> as the candidates barnstorm the battleground states, new polls show the president may have caught an 11th hour break with voters in this deadlocked race may be moving ever so slightly in his direction. our new nbc news/"the wall street journal" poll the president does lead 48% to 47% among likely voters. a look at other national polls confirm it's razor tight, maybe even a mirror image of the 2004 showdown between president bush and senator john kerry. we see some movement towards the president. obama leads by seven points, almost four in ten. and he leads by four points in the battleground states, again, though, within the margin of error. the president is holding on to an eight-point advantage among women and that's slightly higher than romney's edge among men. the president's job rating sits at 49%. take a look at these numbers. 67% of likely
. >> appreciate all the work you are doing. >> then back to boston to await returns with often eye on florida, ohio and virginia, team romney expects as they go, so will the nation. for months despite record spending, record campaign activity, record advertising, neither candidate really been able to break away from the other. tonight in boston there is optimism. hope, anxiousness. preparation for what could be a very late night that could spill in tomorrow or beyond. megyn, bret? >> thank you. >> bret: now to chief white house correspondent ed henry in chicago. sned >> good evening, bret. last night, the obama camp was predicting a blow-out. we got off the phone with the senior advisors saying they have to admit florida, virginia, and slew of battlegrounds are too close to call. >> president obama tried to displace calm and confidence today -- >> i expect we will have a good night. >> it was clear last night the magnitude of the moment set in. as he waits to find out whether he will secure his place in history as a transformational president or mere one-term wonder. >> he said yes, we can. a
day. that is live event, orlando, florida. governor romney set to take the stage after connie mack finishes. jeb bush, the former governor behind him. mack running for the senate position against bill nelson in that state as governor romney and president obama make one final appeal to voters. it has come down to this. good morning, everybody. i'm bill homer. live in "america's newsroom.". martha: i'm martha that mccallum. candidates are crisscrossing the states and getting every bit of energy and looking to some person's eyes who may change their mind after they do this. look at that map. governor romney makes five stops in four states. president obama holds four rallies in three states. as they try to get the surrogates everywhere they can to try to make it happen. >> we've journeyed far and wide in this great campaign for america's future and now we're almost home. one final push will get us there. >> i know a bunch of you already voted. but if you haven't, there's still time. bill: some of those events happened after midnight late last night. chief political correspondent carl c
carried 28 states last time, he carried 26 or 27 states this time, depending on how florida goes. that means republicans did lose everything else, but got back indiana and also north carolina. so it was not a totally hopeless night for republicans. also, hey, remember the crazy thaddeus mccotter seat in michigan, where thaddeus mccotter screwed up and they had to run this reindeer herder, santa claus impersonator for the seat, a guy whose own brother says he's crazy. that guy won. the shirtless reindeer guy won. so the republicans have him. big picture in the house, thanks mostly to redistricting the republicans were not in danger of losing the house, and they didn't legal cause it, even though the republican majority appears to have shrunk there. and even though they did get the reindeer guy. but in terms of, honestly, of what went well for republicans in this election, that was pretty much it. it is a short list. want to talk about what went well on the other side last night? i'm actually going to pause for a second to give you a chance to hit pause on your dvr in case you want
, michigan, florida, new hampshire, getting the vast majority of political events. of course in these last 48 hours, all of the candidates back in ohio and virginia. this programming note, we will have a final campaign rally by the president where he campaigned in iowa. we will have the final appearance in new hampshire of mitt romney tomorrow evening. of course, we are here live all day today as well. michigan, independent line. our question, who is going to win and why? caller: i think that president obama will win. good morning, steve. i think the president will win by a good margin. i have always been a conservative republican. you can see what the republican party has done to people like ron paul, and he was not even given a voice at the national convention. i think that the system is corrupt and people have no choice but to vote for obama. host: thank you for the call. this comment -- host: "the new york daily news," supporting barack obama in 2008, supporting mitt romney in their editorial. inside it says -- "our choice for the future." host: that is from "of the new york daily news" e
virginia and florida. so it could be a big win. and it also could be close. >> good morning. look at that, how beautiful. we are here. we are here. what are we, a day away? this is so exciting. good morning, everyone. >> he said it wasn't going to be close. and then he said it was going to be close. maybe he was talking about president clinton. >> it's monday, november 5th, the day before election day. we have with us mike barnicle, senior political analyst, mark halperin, willie's just walked in. i don't know why you're laughing. >> me? >> no, mike. >> this lighting is disturbing. i don't know who did it. i don't like it. i'm just going to say that right up front. but i'm happy this weekend -- today because this weekend there was a huge sporting event that all the world tuned to. and i can tell you i've never been more proud of the vanderbilt commodores, dudley stadium. >> no, they went on the road and did that. they went to kentucky, to commonwealth stadium. sure. 40-0, 5-4. mika, one more win and vandy's bowl eligible. look how excited mika is. >> that's amazing. >> midas. >> laugh it
fighting for florida electoral votes it will be close. in 2008 president obama beat mccain. but it shows mitt romney is slightly ahead there. >> poll precinct workers are showing up first voters will line up. we are on the west side of the critical i-4 corridor. and the south florida miami-dade and brower tend to vote for democratic nominee and northern and panhandle a lock for the republican. and that's why the swing corridor is so critical. four years ago obama won boy 7 points and before that bush bet kerry by 7 points and there is a lot of enthusiasm and competition between mitt romney and president obama. early lines of and days of voters in broward and palm beach county and yesterday, another 45,000 early votes state wide and select counties allowed in person absentee ballot and technically and legally it was set to end 7:00 p.m. democrats filed suit and tried to extend the hours and governor scott never agreed to that and those were not extended. here are the early look. floridians. four and half million floridians have already voted in the presidential election . there is roughly
in some of the battleground states that could decide it all. governor romney headed to florida, virginia, new hampshire, and ohio. in fact, he and president obama are both in columbus right now. the president also visiting wisconsin and iowa today. bruce springsteen is along for the ride on the president's plane and warming up the crowds for the commander and chief. president obama is asking his supporters don't give up on me now. but governor romney says the president has not delivered the change he promised. >> tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. tomorrow we begin a better tomorrow. this nation is going to begin to change for the better tomorrow. your work is making a difference. the people of the world are watching. the people of america are watching. we can begin a better tomorrow tomorrow and with the help of the people in florida, that's exactly what's going to happen. >> governor romney is a very talented salesman. and in this campaign he has tried as hard as he can to repackage the same old bad ideas and make them out to be new ideas. and try to convince you that he is all about ch
hampshire and wisconsin, and then you put iowa, florida, north carolina, virginia, colorado and the tiny state of nevada in mitt romney's column, and that's how you get it. it's not very implausible, and, yes, we know that right now the president seems like a favorite in nevada, and that's what makes this less likely than what most folks think, but between that and don't forget you've got congressional districts in nebraska and maine. the point is if you remember how we started this campaign which was the state of iowa decided by eight votes between rick santorum and mitt romney and then oh, by the way the results flipped two weeks later, i've always worried that that was foreshadowing this nightmare scenario. >> as you talk to us, chuck, i want to note that vice president biden is waiting in line to vote in delaware this morning. we'll keep an eye on that as you and i continue to talk. >> reporter: speaking of vice president biden. under this scenario and people are wondering if you don't get to 270, this would go to the house, so the house would elect the president. the senate would el
, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. some of the exit polling looks good, some does not, with what people think of health care and the role of government. people ask me, who should i vote for? what will they do? i have no clue. none of the candidates talked about what they'll do. it goes with what john wrote, about how small the campaign is in what is a huge moment. when you think of what is happening with our debt. trillion-dollar defic
? >> look at ohio, he's up six. virginia, up 21. florida, romney is up five. elections are won in the middle. barak obama had the same type of edge that romney can boast that he has now. remember, obama went on to win 54 to 44 john mccain. look, i think that's the most troubling number and i would point out by these new fox polls as well, it shows it's not just independents that the president is losing. he's actually down nine points among white men. six points among women. and four points among that critical youth vote that propelled him to the white house. all around every demographic, the president's underperforming and especially in that early voting. he has a 1-point -- 14-point deficit to what the president had before. these are all indicators that this election could go in romney's favor. >> gretchen: that's the demographics. let's talk about the issues with regard to the latest polls. who do you trust to handle the economy? juan, on these four fronts, it looks like romney is edging president obama, in some cases big margin, specifically on the economy, 52 to 43 p. are you surprised
in state of florida. florida has seen record turnout for both early and absentee ballots. steve harrigan is live with more on that. hi, steve. >> three hours left of early voting here in florida and turnout has been strong throughout the state. polling place in tampa linings are about hour long but some reports are four or five hours in miami-dade. 4 million people have voted early or by absentee ballot. the period for early voting is shorter this year than it was a year ago, just eight days this year. it was 14 days last year. some county election officials have asked for an extra day sunday for early voting the so far the governor has said, no, it's not going to happen. this country, hillsborough has been a bellwether, they have gone with every presidential winner since 1960. they have a sense their votes could be extremely important in this election. >> gregg: are those lines moving pretty quickly, steve? or do people expect to be able to cast their ballots before they close tonight? >> reporter: the lines will stay open even after 7:00 p.m. tonight if people are still in line. people
is not feeling well. i wish you the best and speedy recovery. polls close in florida in less than six hours and the secretary of state is predicting a record high turnout with up to 9 million people voting. up next i talk with danny vargas and the washington post's ann kornbluth. the man everyone talks about when you refer to polls, nate silver of the new york fimz 538 blog. he predicts president obama has a 91% chance of winning re-election. the president will win 313 electoral college votes, governor romney will win 225. >> it's not a coin toss at that point. it's close, but you'd have to have a case where the polls are off across the board. it could happen, but if anything, the race has broken toward president obama a bit in the last 48 hours. >> that, by the way, was nate on last night on colbert. here's something funny making the rounds. lo look at this on social media. it reads keep calm and trust nate silver. join the election day conversation on twitter. you can find us at @tamron hall or at @newsnation. we'll have more on "news nation" live from the beautiful democracy plaza. i lik
matthews band. i'm looking forward to it. tomorrow sunday in new hampshire. florida. ohio. back to ohio and colorado. monday wisconsin, guess where, ohio after that. and then iowa before he finishes up in chicago where he will spend election eve. ohio we should mention nbc news and the marist organization yesterday put out their poll for ohio has the president up six. a whopping margin compared to what we've seen in the past. our poll even has the president up two in florida. so the obama team certainly optimistic and down the stretch they come to keep that sports metaphor going. >> love it. thank you. >> as for the challenger mitt romney needs to rally his troops and out gun the president's skilled operation. peter zand certificate on a plane right now with the romney campaign. he called this report for us right before takeoff. >> reporter: two stops down, three more to go today as part of the 72 hour final sprint for mitt romney here in dubuque, iowa there's been a unique opportunity on the campaign plane as we prepare to board for colorado. several of the governor's top advisers are
as i told you yesterday in the presidential race, in florida has yet to be called here is the absentee ballot voting delay to push right on the floor of the election. we don't know where the 29 electoral votes will go but have made every outcome of the presidential election. back to the topic here. what was your message to washington? a lot of newspaper articles this morning about the fiscal the cliff and that is what faces -- >> we will leave this portion of this morning's washington journal now to go live to the american enterprise institute for panel discussions on the election with fox news channel commentator michael barone, inside out columnist norman borkenstein and others. it is just beginning. this is live coverage from c-span2. >> to start the aei series in 1982. he is with us here today been lautenberg and the late richard scamen were the people to look at the intersection of democracy and public often opinion data in the 1970 book "the real majority." they told us how important changing demographics would be to future e elections come indigenous election de pass braking ins
. >> if we see florida that is tight, and that will be a sign. virginia closes at 7:00. if that is going, i think we should see how the race is shaping up on tuesday night by seveno'clock. >> that is early. >> but that will tell us how the rest of the night is starting to shape up. it could be a late, late night on tuesday and into wednesday morning. >> that's what i am hearing the analyst >> brian: >> i closed my show, when i go back to dc, i will know who the president will be. i should have said i should know who the president should be. >> unless you delay your trip home. >> and we would love to have you. >> thank you for stopping by. >> ahead of tuesday, remember to tune in texas american special hosted by megan kelly and bret baier. we look forward to that. and now we want to go live to the swing state of ohio which i talk tod bret about. the intense ground game both are playing to get out the vote eric shawn told us fresh concerns about voters fraud. as you know, no republican ever won the white house without winning ohio. steve drown is live in the north central stave mansfield. ste
. virginia, pennsylvania, ohio, florida, iowa and nevada are all states that harbor a lot of swing voters. so folks here they want to make sure they encourage to vote democrat. >> the main thrust to all day long is to get out the vote obviously. we have been doing this for a while and today is crunch day so we want to get people ensure they are getting to the polls. >> reporter: now last night republicans were just as bessy at their headquarters in contracosta county trying to get the word out about mitt romney and they participated in phone banking and noticed a surge in republican enthusiasm. >> overnight, after that first debate, the energy level and volunteers have soared. and people have started to call and coming in and wanting to help. >> the election is very close. the polls are showing even in the race for rickey gillas within one point. >> reporter: republicans say a come from behind win is doable and they are hopeful and thefeeling among democrats that president obama needs to remain in office because they want him to finish what he started. now we are told here at the democratic h
's making stops there every day between now and tuesday. he'll also be in virginia, florida, new hampshire, iowa, colorado and wisconsin over the next 96 hours. mitt romney will be in many of those same states over the next four days, although he's hitting pennsylvania and skipping florida. president obama was back on the trail yesterday after a three-day break to oversee the storm recovery. rallying to a crowd of 10,000 in colorado. the president made what some are saying was a jab at his opponent's tendency to change his mind. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision that i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bailout, only 10% of the country approved of it. including, by the way, folks in michigan and ohio. but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> mitt romney also returned to pre-hurricane attack mode yesterday. at a rally in virginia, romney blasted the
it is friday, we still don't know who won florida. workers are still counting the ballots. 31,000 ballots were tallied. and yesterday afternoon, president obama had 49.9 percent. and mitt romney it 49.percent. results are due by noon tomorrow. >> we know all about michele obama's war on junk food but apparently her husband didn't get the memo. washington group called on president obama to stop eating fatty foods in public. the president is glamorizing eating junk food. and the group said all of the stops on the campaign trail and the president must kick the habit. >> we were growing up with popeye. >> steve: we don't eat spinach but just eat at pop eyes. maybe he eats it because he likes it. >> brian: popeye comes with added stress . you break out before you eat the meal . >> steve: thank you very much pop eye. five-days before the u.s. election . anything is happening and waiting for an october surprise and this probably would have been it if we had known about it one of our predator drones was fired upon by a couple of iranian fighter planes. they squeezed off two volleys of machine depun fi
know returns from florida. a day to spend a little more time on why this is hot and and that is made for us going forward. first, i share the admiration all ran for president the bonus campaign team. they're technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of a campaign team is to identify and turn out voters. they planned it, executed at them every step of the way they knew what those they needed and they went out and began weeks before election day banking favorable votes in states where they had already had people on the ground crew plan to produce. so technically superb operation when it was set to standard for future campaigns and how you identify your voters, encourage them to turn out and perhaps some people think by the fourth or fifth visitor phone call, urging on harassment to turn them out, but it did work. the point i want to make dionne not however because the technical aspect look at a lot of attention. i like to point how much of this is actually policy-based. the fact is elections have ultimately about policies, not just campaign techniques. the first policy o
florida, like virginia, you also see obama clinging to very, very within the margin of error slim leads in states like new hampshire. unfortunately, none of us are allowed to sleep through election day. we're all going to have to watch the polls. >> i will let you gaze into your crystal ball, whether you like to or not, and give me a one-word answer if there is a state that keeps us awake on election night, what will it be? the conventional wisdom is ohio. molly? >> well, just because of the time zone difference, it has to be colorado or nevada. >> what do you think, dana? >> i'm hoping for a recount in hawaii. i'm ready to go out there. >> i'm with you on that one. dana and molly, may we all be going west if there is a delay. thank you, both. >>> homeland security secretary janet napolitano is in the northeast today to assess hurricane damage. right now she's in connecticut and will be meeting with the governor. later on, she'll head here to new york city. the travel gridlock nationwide from sandy is finally starting to ease up a bit. laguardia airport opened this morning in new york.
sentenced to death in florida. police in los angeles say they will investigate the claim in that documentary but they don't believe that rogers was involved in the murder. >>> well, a missouri mother who told police that her son was plotting a shooting massacre at a movie theater is talking for the first time since her son was arrested. she says her son recently asked if he was a failure. authorities say her son blake had plotted to attack a movie theater during the premiere of the new twilight film. she says her son had been undergoing mental health treatment and shows sign of as asburger's. >> an investigator says the man revint purchased two assault rifles and 400 rounds of ammunition. blake was arrested in 2009 after allegedly following a walmart clerk with a knife and rubber mask after watching the horror movie "halloween." >>> nurses at ten bay area hospitals will be locked out until sunday. that's after they staged strike at eight sutter health hospitals and two in san jose operated by hca. >> stand up and fight back! >> the nurses are upset after the hospitals un laterally im-- imple
in on ohio, florida and virginia and i am chairman of the campaign and we intend to take those swing states. >> gretchen: you need a certain number of electorial vote to win the presidency. the projection is obama 290 and obama 248 and popular vote romney would win. if that happens again and having just happened in the last decade, wouldn't there be hysteria about changing the system? >> i think some people would gripe. that happened in the bush-gore election. but you know what, we republicans and most independents play by the rules and everyone knew the rules going into the presidential election electtoral map matters most. and i don't think that i would certainly hope that there would not be a lot of people whining out there. what is brewing in america is going to be enough and plenty to lift mitt romney up . >> gretchen: being what else was brewing was hurricane sandy. what will the be of the storm and people getting out to vote or do you think it will change the way in which people vote? >> i think it possibly could. you look at common wealth of virginia our great governor did a terrifi
carolina and florida, basically have the two candidates either tied, but obama having a one, two or more point lead, as many as five in some state polls, lead over romney. why the discrepancy between the national survey and the state polls? >> the discrepancy is caused by the tremendous number of negative ads that the obama campaign ran against mitt romney over the course of the last six months. a rising tide lifts all boats, but it doesn't lift them quite as far in the battle ground states as it does elsewhere because of all the negative ads that the obama campaign has run. nevertheless, a lot of those states are incredibly close, there are eight states right now that are within less than 3 points. so, who knows which way those are going to go on tuesday. >> paul: there's another a factor here which is interesting in the polling, which is in these head to head surveys in the swing states, president obama typically can't get above 47, 48%, even if he's leading romney by a couple of points, he can't get rise to get to that 50% level and that gives a lot of people in the romney camp confid
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
off-key biscayne in florida after he spent seven hours clinging to the top of a cooler. this after a large wave capsized the boat he was in. he was boating at the time, fishing on sunday night. >> this gentleman, when he came on scene, this was only thing he was holding onto. he weighed, 200, 220 pounds. unfortunately he was unable to get to his life jacket with the vessel capsized. >> he is fine. he is really cold, skin from being in the water too long. bill: his brother, by the way was with him. he managed to swim safely to shore. thank goodness for coolers, huh? martha: there are new questions today surrounding the strength of the cease-fire agreement between israel and militants of the gaza strip. life seems to return to normal a the moment in the middle east however there could be some very dark clouds on the horizon as we often found in this situation. conner powell joins me right now. i met with islamic militants and is live in gaza city with the latest. >> reporter: nearly a week into the cease-fire agreement, martha and continues to hold. few people in gaza or across the b
